Eelgrass Transplant - Volunteers Needed! We're hoping to do a small eelgrass transplant on July 14th from noon - 2:00 p.m. and we need volunteers to help prepare the eelgrass shoots. This activity is suitable for all ages but please dress for the weather if you plan to come out. We will be confirming details early in the week so please be sure to check back for any changes to the schedule. Meet at Stawamus (follow Billy Drive - just beside Totem Hall - all the way to the end and you'll see us set up by the water front) Thank you!
It's Amphibian Mating Season! Keep a Watch out for Horny Toads!
It's the time of year amphibians start to mate and lay egg masses in our various wetlands. It is important not to disturb wetlands for the next 3 - 4 months. One dog running around in a pond can decimate an entire amphibian population. We have numerous native amphibian species here in Squamish including Red-legged Frog, Northwestern Salamander, and Western Toads. They all need wetlands to spawn in so keep an eye out for the gelatinous masses that cover and protect the delicate eggs!
